The Black Stars of Ghana won the 5th edition of African Cup of Nations in 1965. This was their 2nd successful outing at Championship of African Football (CAF). They defeated hosts Tunisia 3-2 after extra time. Just like in 1963, the field of six teams was split into two groups of three. Ghana retained its title. Osei Kofi was the best player of the tournament and stalwart mid-fielder Ben (Simmons) Acheampong was the top goal scorer of the tournament. Frank “VC 10” Odoi scored in the 37th and 96th minute and Osei Kofi scored in the 79th minute to secure Ghana’s 3 goals against Tunisia’s two.
